鄧肯-史密斯的交通錐攻擊事件中的男子被洗脫罪名

這位前保守黨領袖告訴曼徹斯特地方法院,當他被錐子 "猛擊 "到頭上時,他擔心他的妻子和她的朋友。

這位68歲的老議員說,他的團隊在2021年該市舉辦保守黨會議時,從米德蘭酒店走到美居酒店時成為目標。

Goldspring先生告訴法庭,Bovill先生的身份是由一名偵探根據閉路電視錄像確定的,周一向法庭展示了閉路電視錄像,以及對Iain爵士的襲擊者所穿衣服的一些描述。

他明確表示,這位政治家在該事件中受到了攻擊,但問題是是否有足夠的證據證明Bovill先生負有責任。

法官說。"在我看來,已經進行的鑑定存在一些困難。

"事實是,[該官員]所使用的東西在一開始就很模糊和有缺陷"。

Goldspring先生繼續說道。"在我看來,識別證據很弱,很脆弱,而且完全沒有任何其他證據的支持。"

沃爾科特女士說,她接受偵探 "真誠地 "進行了辨認,但他 "真誠地相信 "錄像中的男子是鮑威爾先生,這還不夠好。


The former Tory leader told Manchester Magistrates Court he feared for his wife and her friend when he had the cone "slammed" on to his head.

The 68-year-old veteran MP said his group was targeted as they walked from the Midland Hotel to the Mercure Hotel as the city hosted the Conservative Party conference in 2021..

Mr Goldspring told the court Mr Bovill had been identified by a detective on the basis of CCTV footage which was shown to the court on Monday, along with some descriptions of the clothing worn by Sir Iain's attacker.

He made it clear the politician had been assaulted in the incident but the question was whether there was sufficient evidence to prove Mr Bovill was responsible.

The judge said: "It seems to me there are a number of difficulties with the identification that had been made.

"The fact is that what [the officer] was working with was vague and flawed in the first instance."

Mr Goldspring continued: "In my view, the identification evidence is weak, it's tenuous, and it is completely unsupported by any other evidence."

Ms Walcott said she accepted the detective made the identification "in good faith" but his "honestly held belief" that the man in the footage was Mr Bovill was not good enough.
